Hey guys, I have had a lot of you asking about off-season training lately. A lot of people say they do not have a lot of time to train in the off-season due to kids/wife/husband/work/cold weather etc. So I figured what better way to get idea's on training then from the best paddlers in the world?? I know some of them just from going to different events and some of them I just contacted and they were cool enough to help us out with some tips. One of the coolest things about this sport is that even the best paddlers in the world are down to earth. I plan to post tips every few days from different pros that responded. The question I asked them was "if you had less then an hour a day to get a workout (Off Water) what would you do?"

Dave Kalama is a LEGEND in the surf and sup world. Notorious Big Wave rider and watermen, he wrote the book on sup. All his workouts are focused on being able to stay out on the water longer and have more fun. All very basic core workouts, Dave says
"Jump rope, push ups, and crunches, at the most basic level, ad more if you have the time. Even just a little yoga also helps me a lot. aloha, Dave
Thanks Dave, pretty cool that one of the biggest names in sup and one of the most legendary watermen on the planet still takes the time to lend some advice. Check out some great articles on Dave's site
